- Indectron – Shield House
Indectron provides premium carrier neutral colocation data centre technical space to service providers, enterprise, media, education, healthcare and government organisations.
Their data centres are used as protected environments for data and critical systems connected with a wide range of networks and cloud service providers.
Sudlows were awarded the contract to build the new Shield House data centre via competitive tender.
Shield House (GCR1) has capacity for more than 500 colocation racks within a high quality business park, which is developing into the cyber-security hub of the United Kingdom. The facility’s intelligent design delivers enhanced environmental efficiencies and perfectly supports high density computing.
The accredited facility is supported by resilience in both design and operations with helpdesk and remote hands services, which are available 24/7, 365 days a year.
With a communications heritage and a focus on cyber-security, Gloucestershire is an ideal location for Shield House as an accredited carrier neutral data centre. The Gloucester data centre is situated in Barnwood within easy reach of the motorway network linking it to Bristol, Birmingham, Swindon and Oxford.
Andrew Bence, Managing Director at Indectron, said: “Sudlows impressed the team here at Indectron and won our tender because they went above and beyond the requirements of the tender process.”
Andy Hirst, Managing Director of Critical Infrastructures at Sudlows, added: “This is an outstanding facility that utilises the very best energy efficient technology.”
